Grove Dental Associates’ Dr. Stan Crawford recently ended his ninth year serving on the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry.

In this role, he contributed to the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry’s Mission to act as a guardian of the dental profession; supervising and protecting the public from poorly trained, poorly motivated, unethical, and hazardous dentistry.

From licensure and discipline, to legislation and statutes, board membership demands a high degree of diligence and responsibility from its members; qualities and Crawford has always exemplified in his own practice.

In addition to his Oklahoma Board of Dentistry Duties, Crawford also serves the profession on a national level as a dental examiner for University students pursing dental licensure.

On call throughout the year, he not only oversees the clinical exams, but also devotes himself to improving the exam, mentoring students and promoting technological advancements in the industry. His goal is to improve the standards of education and licensure of America’s future dentists, ensuring the availability of high quality dentistry for future generations.

As his tenure on the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry came to an end in June 2016, he was honored to be succeeded by his wife and fellow dentistry partner, Dr. Audrey Crawford.

Elected last summer by dentists across Oklahoma, Audrey Crawford has been expanding her dental career and working tirelessly to uphold the highest dentistry standards across the state.

Her experience and wisdom from 25 years of dentistry makes her a great fit for this prestigious board position, and her comprehensive approach to both dental and systemic health creates high expectations and enthusiasm for the future of the profession.

Audrey Crawford is an ideal representative for the dental profession in her new role as board member, in her local dental practice, and in her ongoing participation in community outreach events such as local health fairs, dental screenings, international mission work, and support of local schools and charities.
